How to generate huge MS word document from force.com data?


I am in the public sector/government business and we are developing an application on force.com. we need to generate huge proposal documents (300 to 500 pages long) and the content is derived form the custom objects in our applications.  Transaction system would have captured all the data elements, which needs to be connected to infer some of the briefing outputs. I tried s-docs and has issues after 20 pages.


Appreciate you sharing ways to generate documents like, word, excel and powerpoint, using a template or not.


One approach would be generation of a dataset through the soap api that you could then use to construct a final document through a mail merge template system.  Using the native merge in word shouldn't have a problem with your large document.
